Daily Herald report

Tuesday marked the first day for a new secretary of state driver services facility in Des Plaines, offering a host of services including license renewals, road tests and new license plate stickers.

The office moved to the Oak Leaf Commons strip mall at 1468 Lee St., next to the Jewel-Osco, following the closure of its Niles location this spring.

During the soft opening Tuesday, lines were rather short, though officials estimate the facility could eventually draw up to 550 visitors a day.

A formal ribbon cutting with Secretary of State Jesse White is expected later this month.
